Embassy of the Czech Republic in Nairobi: Small Scale Development Projects
Deadline: 1 October 2018
The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Nairobi implements in East Africawithin the Czech Development Cooperation 1-2 Small Scale Local Development Projects. Small Scale Development Grants financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
The main objective of this foreign development tool is not capacity building of the implementer (that means that standard expenditures need to be covered by implementer and money for the grant will not used for salaries or travel expenses etc.), but support of his/her development activities. However the SSDG should not bring just development outputs, but also increase the visibility of the Czech Republic. Therefore it is desirable that the implementer would cooperate with Czech subjects, e.g. would purchase Czech products, use Czech know-how etc.
Projects are supported by the amount of 200 000 – 500 000 CZK (approx. 8 000 – 20 000 EUR), which needs to be spent within one year and fully reported (bookkeeping documents would be required) to the Embassy. It is possible to combine the SSDG with other financial sources.
The basic condition of participating on SSDG is that the implementation would be in one of EAC member states and the implementer would be an organization registered in the same EAC member state (e.g. organization registered in Kenya would implement a project in Kenya). Further crucial condition is sustainability (meaning the project would be able to run in a future without further financial support).
